Ontario's former environment watchdog slams Doug Ford's government - 2019-09-27
TORONTO — Ontario's former environmental watchdog told thousands at a climate change rally in Toronto that the Progressive Conservatives government has become an "obstacle" to climate change progress.
Dianne Saxe, whose job was eliminated by the government earlier this year, told the crowd gathered outside the provincial legislature that Ontario had a good record on climate change action until Doug Ford's government was elected last year.
"What governments do really matters, elections do really matter," she said. "The Ontario government was a strong leader in climate action and now it's the biggest obstacle that we've got."
